Peri-Urban Forum

The influx of small lifestyle landowners in Greater Sydney’s peri-urban areas is increasing and can have an adverse impact on the overall health of our environment.

This one-day forum is for council staff and networks involved in natural resource management (sustainable land management) in peri-urban areas and will:

  • Outline sustainable land management tools and resources available to landholders, including topics of pest animals, weeds, bush regeneration, native vegetation, habitat restoration and much more.
  • Develop the skills and confidence of council and network staff to effectively provide ongoing support to peri-urban landholders.
  • Explore existing landholder programs being delivered by peri-urban councils in the region.
  • Hear first-hand from peri-urban landholders in the Greater Sydney region how they have managed and improved their properties.

Who should attend?

  • NRM managers/officers
  • Landcare/Bushcare volunteer coordinators
  • Regional Landcare Coordinators
  • Council staff working with or adjacent to peri-urban landholders
  • Weed and pest animal officers
